The member of the staff were very kind and friendly and support the tourists in every kind of facilities: taxis, transports and tourists informations and bus booking. The room are clean and the...

I am currently writing this from Room 708 at the hotel and today is our last day before jetting off again. We stayed here before our trip around the Himalayas and returned once or tour was over. All members of staff here have been helpful, polite and generally wonderful people. When we departed for Tibet, our main suitcase (packed ready... More

+ I stayed this hotel during 4 nights. 2 twin rooms I stayed were very clean and good. The bedding was fluffy and thick, so I had good sleeps in winter season. View from rooms were very nice and peaceful. It took about 10 minutes to Tamel (main tourist street). but it wasn't problem. Streets were safe and good to... More

Me and my friend had been traveling in Nepal for 2 months and every time we had visited Kathmandu, we had stayed in this pretty hotel. There we received excellent service and the best tomato soup ever. The restaurant in the garden is more than lovely, we used to spend all day long inside, surrounded with flowers and friendly staff.... More

My friends and I came to Nepal for a friend's wedding. We were originally going to stay with her uncle but didn't want to intrude, so decided last minute to book a hotel. Our friends called the hotel the day of check in and set everything up. We stayed there for 4 nights/5 days. They have 2 types of rooms,... More

The hotel was really nice and welcoming. The rooms were noisy (I guess you get that in the middle of a city) and adequate. The bonus was a lovely garden to sit in. Prices were good, staff helpful. We stayed for 3 nights after travelling around remote west Nepal and eating with locals the whole time, but it was during... More

A nice hotel, close to the bustling old city center and the shops. Carefull, they have different quality rooms, some really nice, large, with bathtubes and a lot of space, others smaller, crampier, but the price is the same. You have to haggle for the best solution. The garden is wonderfull, having breakfast outside is the best way to start... More

Having spent one night in an alternative hotel we chose to move due to the superiority of Hotel Ganesh Himal. The food is good and there is a lovely garden to relax and eat/drink in. There are a range of great facilities including free wifi and computers, money exchange, laundry, free mineral water refills, an in-house company that can organise... More

On the night of our arrival, we were delighted to see our appointed driver who collected us from the airport. We were also told beforehand by the manager to not give any tips on people who would offer to carry your bags which was great for there a handful who actually did that. The location of the hotel is just... More
